are being asked to shut down this coming sunday. tracie potts joins us from washington. good morning. what's driving this move? >> reporter: there's a possible al qaeda threat out there, not a credible one that we're aware of, but it is time specific, sources tell nbc, and that's why they want to shut down a number of embassies on the 4th of august, which is sunday. take a look. if you look at the map you can see the embassies that we got a list of overnight. these are the 15 that would normally be open on a sunday that are going to be shutting down, including iraq, afghanistan and a number of others throughout the middle east and asia. this is what sources are telling us. as a result of ramadan, which ends on wednesday, they think there's some threat that's tied to the end of that muslim month of fasting. but they don't know what's going to happen. they believe the target is an overseas embassy or some sort of overseas post. but they don't know which one specifically. so in an abundance of caution, the state department says it is shutting them all down. richard? >> tracie potts, thank you

in emily schmidt from washington. the state department decided to close those embassies and consulates just for sunday and now it will be extended through next weekend. what changed? >> they always said when they said it would be on sunday there was a possibility for extensions. we saw there would be indeed be extensions. it is doing so out of an abundance of caution. it is not an indication of a new threat stream. there is word from the state department about what will happen with the embassy closings. 19 will be closed through saturday august 10th. that is next saturday including new locations that were not closed today. but nine posts that were closed today will be allowed to reopen tomorrow. we are learning about what led to the shut downs. this is coming from barbara starr reporting an intercepted message that came in the past few days caused the concern. cnn agreed to a request not to go into details about the message because of the sensitivity but we know that this message was a critical factor in leading to the shutdown but not the only factor. u.s. officials have seen increased thr

and the washington -- grand canyon and the washington monument and everything that what happened when we shut down government, the american people will react in a negative fashion and will blame congress. there are some of my colleagues in the hopkinson at that say we have to repeal obama care if we're going to raise the debt limit. my friends, that does not work. i want to repeal obamacare. it happens to be the way i voted, but it is not the way it will happen. we do not have 67 votes in the united states senate, which was what would be required to override a presidential veto. and so, i think it is not a right approach. what i do want to continue this repeal parts of obamacare, which are very onerous and are very harmful in my view to healthcare in america. i do not know what is going to happen, but i believe we will not shut down the government. i believe it is time the american people are heard they want us to sit down together and avoid what is turning into every year or every two years that we threatened people like you. it contributes -- i joke about the congress, but i am not proud of that
